"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Three epitaph panels for Yi Kyung-suk (1595-1671).
Each plaque consists of 12 lines of text, plus a "page number" at the far right.
A chair and canes belonging to Yi Kyung-suk are in the Gyeonggi Provincial Museum (Korean treasure #930) , said to have been given to him by King Hyunjong.
